@ comment #8: I was referring to:
- User opens Windows Explorer
- User navigates through c:\Program Files\WOTR and clicks on Rings_Demo.exe
This results in Windows executing Rings_Demo.exe _with_ absolute path.
OTOH, in the following situation (e.g. in GNOME):
- User opens nautilus
- User navigates through ~/.wine/drive_c/etc.. and clicks on Rings_Demo.exe
GNOME will pass the following to wine:
- current dir: $HOME
- argv: absolute path to Rings_Demo.exe
which, unless converted to win32 form, is not consistent with the Windows
behaviour. This is also inconvenient for command-line users running "wine
$HOME/.wine/drive_c/..../Rings_Demo.exe" (the equivalent of that is a full path
OTOH, on Windows, Rings_Demo.exe will always work unless you run it via cmd.exe
from the game directory (using a relative path), or if you hack the *.lnk file
as you described.
